Durbanites in Rocklands

Durban locals Mathieu Schneuwly and Benjamin and Rachelle de Charmoy made their annual winter pilgrimage to Rocklands and managed some good sends despite the rain storms that lasted more than half their trip. Rachelle sent "Model Robber" and "Directors Cunt" both 7B and Mathieu and Benjamin cleaned up around the Plateau Boulders with double sends of "Weichei" 7C+, "Born Into Struggle" 7B+/7C, and "Louder Than Bombs" 7C (which Mathieu flashed). Ben also tied up a project from last year and dispatched "Caroline" 7C, as well as the awesome dyno "Black Velvet" 8A. Mathieu also came close to doing "Black Velvet" and stuck the jump a couple of times minus the first move. Not bad at all for a bunch of sport climbers...
